Stadium Bleacher Replacement Project








Phase I of the Stadium Bleacher Replacement project will begin with the start of Winter Break on Monday, December 22, 2014. This phase includes the demolition of all the seating, stairs, footboards and kick plates at the west bleachers. The contractor will be removing the structures that are currently under the west bleachers and removing all loose paint on the bleacher infrastructure. The buildings and paint on the infrastructure contain lead paint, therefore, a licensed hazardous waste company has been retained to perform the remediation of the lead paint.


Due to the demolition/remediation work, the Stadium will be closed for the entire winter break and intersession (Monday, December 22, 2014 through Monday, January 19, 2015). All gates will be locked and posted with signage explaining the demolition and lead paint remediation work.


Phase II of the project will be to install all new aluminum seats, footboards, kick plates, stairs and handrails. The west bleachers will also be upgraded to accommadate the appropriate accessible seating and approaches. The press box will be demolished on the east side.and the east side Men’s restroom will undergo minor renovation to improve accessibility. Phase II is scheduled to begin March 3, 2015 and will be completed May 1, 2015.


The Stadium will be open during the Phase II work, however, the west bleacher area will be fenced off and inaccessible until construction is complete.


Phase III of the project will be to do the seismic work on the east bleachers. This will take place summer 2015.
